The leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF) Asari Dokubo has tackled leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu over the constant closure of business in the South East region as a result of the sit-at-home order of the IPOB.
In past weeks, IPOB has compelled residents of South East to remain indoors whenever Kanu, its leader, is arraigned in court.
Kanu and Dokubo have been at loggerheads over the quest for Biafra — the very cause that unites them.
The cold war between them resulted in the formation of the Biafra Customary Government (BCG) which Dokubo announced in March last year, with himself as the head.
In a Facebook live update monitored by The Nation, Dokubo carpeted the group for forcing Igbos to stay indoor whenever Kanu is arraigned in court.
He said: “Fellow Biafrans, I have to come to you because of the crisis and the tragedy of genocidal proportion that’s enveloping Igboland, and any igbo man that’s supporting this, is evil. I want to clearly state that I have Igbo blood flowing in my veins.
“I have enough dose of Igbo blood flowing in my veins, and I have never denied it. Every part of my family have Igbo blood flowing in their veins. So I am a stakeholder in Igboland, I can speak on what’s happening.
“Those of you who are encouraging this evil of cannibalism, forcing Igbo people will be haunted forever. Igboland has been destroyed by some demented followers. These demented persons are engaging in all sort of evils, eating humans. I have first hand information. I have pictures and videos.
“Many Igbos are abroad, and they are supporting evil happening in Biafra land. Look at Onitsha has been destroyed. Now they’ve 4 days or sometimes 3 days of market, and no sales.
“What’s the use of Igboman without commerical activities? The time is coming when the people will rise up. Very soon. What sort of Biafra are we looking for, we kill our own people.”
He added: “What’s Igboman without trade? What freedom is Igbo man looking for without trade? Many have been killed because they spoke against the sit-at-home. Sooner or later, every Igbo man will rise up.
“I’m not jealous of Nnamdi Kanu, I’m richer than him. I’ve more children than him. I have 21 children. So why would I be jealous of him?”
